This Class is CLOSED for the 2019-20 School Year.
An in-depth view of American history helps students develop a working knowledge of the major time periods and historical characters. Students spend four weeks each in the following time periods: Exploration and Native Americans; Colonial Times; the American Revolution and the Constitution; Westward Expansion; Slavery and the Industrial Revolution; Civil War to the 1900s; World War 1, the Depression and World War 2; and the Late Twentieth Century to Present. With this combined geography and history course, a map will be completed each week reflecting the events of the time period we are studying. Additionally, students explore topics via whole books, keep a timeline along with a student notebook and write, based on historical topics.
The instructor is available during live office hours and by email to assist students. Assignments are graded and students receive a mid-term report as well as a year-end course completion report.
